I found the site http://www.worldfamilies.net/mtdna/u5/
was indeed an entry for a participant having a Cherokee maternal line
Is this a common or rare finding within the study -- to look at the
results, I thought it appeared rare. But I'm interested in the
one-off, always. Of course, in that the East Coast was ground 0 for
European-Native American intermarriage in the days of early
settlement, and the location of the maternal line ancestor was East
Coast North America, there could be any number of explanation (or one!).
I could not locate the administrator link -- if someone wants to refer
me to a POC for the site, I'd be glad to follow up on this lead as we
do also have this type in our data.
